Corn-free Every Day Link Party – Jun 09, 2015

The Corn-free Link Party is Back for the Summer!

corn free everyday iconThe move is complete but the unpacking is never-ending! But I have a brand-new kitchen in my new home and I can’t wait to make all sorts of fabulous new recipes for you. My tip for this week was a created out of necessity during my move.


Tip #4: Batch Prep for Protein Shakes

Protein Shake Ice CubesNecessity is the mother of invention, right? I needed a quick high protein breakfast to keep me going during my move. I wanted it so fast that I didn’t even need to use the blender. So instead of freezing my nut milk to blend into my shake, I froze the shake ingredients to add to my nut milk!

This will work with any shake recipe you like, but my turmeric-spiked, inflammation-fighting combo is below. Hint: You’ll want to go with strong flavors, if you use the turmeric. The cacao masks the flavor in my version.

My Protein Shake Base Ingredients

  • Protein powder (I use pea protein)
  • Raw cacao powder
  • Sweetener ( I used coconut sugar)
  • Cashew butter
  • Turmeric powder, optional (for inflammation)
  • Homemade almond/brazil nut milk (just enough to blend it together)

Protein Shake in JarBlend your base and pour into an ice-cube tray. Then when you need a protein boost, add a few cubes to a canning jar or thermal mug along with some nut milk. Shake it and drink up on the go!

By the way, I have a lot of pulp leftover from all the nut milk that went into the shakes. I’m looking for creative ways to use that up. A girl can only eat some many corn-less tortillas and un-cornmeal muffins. Ideas?

I’ll post the featured recipes from the uber link party later this week.

Increasing Corn Allergy Awareness

I’m so pleased that everyone is enjoying the corn-free link party. One of my long-term goals is to raise awareness of corn allergies until it is recognized as a top allergen and labeling is required. It’s my personal opinion that corn allergies in the United States are very under-diagnosed. It’s in just about everything so it’s hard to eliminate and prove that corn is the cause of the allergy symptoms.

I think this party can help raise the awareness with bloggers. So I encourage you to spread the word and thank you for linking up today!

Comment Issues

I appreciate all your comments. I’m always so pleased to find out that I’m providing valuable information to you. A couple of people have told me that my spam blockers have given them problems. I’m so sorry that spammers are ruining it for us all. I just don’t have time to fish out the real comments from the spam and hold down a full-time job.
